The importance of lifelong learning has been championed by great iconoclasts from Gandhi to Picasso. Through their own curiosity and desire to make things different and better, these people changed the world and the way that subsequent generations think about everything from art to citizenship. In many ways, the work of our members at the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is similar. Bringing the assets of business to the table to solve some of our most intractable environmental and social problems demands new ways of thinking about the world.

As corporate citizenship professionals, you have the unique task of helping the companies in which you operate reach new frontiers for products and performance ethically and sustainably. To be effective, you need to stay abreast not only of the guidelines, innovations, challenges, and opportunities affecting the profession, but also of the many internal and external pressures that are driving progress in your companies. These are important and weighty tasks. It’s impossible to do it all alone. We all do plenty of learning by doing. It is also important for all of us to carve time out for refreshing our knowledge and sharing what we have learned along the way. This investment is key to advancing corporate citizenship.

So where can you get that extra boost to keep yourself informed and energized? At the Center we are working continually to develop information assets and professional development opportunities to support you on your journey. From primary research materials derived from our own studies—and digestible summaries of key findings from the most reputable academic journals—to courses designed to offer effective tools to help navigate emerging topics, our mission at the Center is to arm you with the materials you need to know more, do more, and—ultimately—achieve more through your corporate citizenship program.
